hi. so after 10+ years of playing guitar i've only now started to actually sit down and practice scales and solo's of bands i like. Over the years i have developed some speed but i seem to have hit some sort of barrier, let me give you an example. Some months ago i got really back into children of bodom, and as my favorite solo has always been the end solo to Follow the Reaper i decided it would be a nice challenge to myself to try and play it. So i downloaded the tab and went on to practice, starting slow, metronome and all. I've been on this for a good month now and i can't seem to go any faster than 160 bpm! this is starting to get pretty frustrating as the right tempo is somewhere around 197 (according to the GP file). Does anyone have any tips on how i can overcome this barrier? i am really trying to make my movements as minimal as possible and am really focussing on playing it the right way. Is this just a matter of just keeping at it or is there something i can do to help myself?
